With bad grammer and lots of capital letters and exclamation points.

If it has good information and recipes from Switzerland it might be worth getting. But I actually expect the book to be nothing but a self promoting advertisement.

If it`s not too expensive, I will.

She have traveled a lot and if it shows in her book (anecdotes, pictures and all), it could be interesting.

Let`s just hope she won`t just translate Delahaye`s books or copy Conrad.

Now I'm skeptical. If I order it will I get a cleverly disguised book about pastis? Betty's authentic suisse la bleue cover, with a cheap paperback inside?

I'm sure it will get great reviews, like a raindrop falling on a leaf on the first day of autumn, like a burst of snow from an avalanche in the Swiss Alps, like a ray of sunlight through a window...

And you don't have to worry about customs agent breaking down your door, unlike with those other La Bleue books.

Well, $200 is a bit cheap for good ole Betty. I'd a thunk it was at least $350 or so.
